Vintage gurus Andrew Nguyen (Blues Hard Goods) and Tara Papanicolas (Los Gitanos Vintage) are one super-stylish power couple. With multiple degrees from FIT and Parsons, decades of collective experience designing for Brooks Brothers, styling for Betsy Johnson, and a laundry list of other notable moments, together they offer Washington some of the finest vintage out of their private showroom. Plus, they're unbelievably nice people who are an integral part of the DC creative scene. Prime example: when we moved into our new house, Andrew helped source some fantastic mid-century modern gems for the living room and used his interior design background to solve the lay-out conundrum of our rambling Victorian row house. Perfection!
I took some quick photos of their shop for the American Express Small Business Saturday campaign - check out the rest of the photos in the gallery below.
